A line of aluminum profiles are sawn on the indented sides at irregular intervals and bent to form a crystalline structure. The proportions of these irregular intervals were determined according to Le Corbusier’s ‘Modulor’– the system of proportions on which all his buildings are based, and which had a crucial influence on modernist architecture. By echoing the Golden Section and the Fibonacci Sequence, the artworks address the ideals behind modernism – urban, social and utopian concepts and living units supposedly adapted to human proportions. The errors and missing reference points in the artworks consciously undermine these idealised concepts. (A.W.)
